Great review of ‘Web Accessibility: Web Standards and Regulatory Compliance’

(Last Updated on )

The kind of review every author dreams of was posted on my 40th birthday:

Let me get a few words out of the way about Web Accessibility: Web Standards and Regulatory Compliance—wow, wow, wow.

… if there are accessibility classes being taught in college these days (and there ought to be), then this book should be an assigned text, and a bargain it would be too. Bruce Lawson must be applauded for his dedication to this series … and putting the people behind it together.

… I like to conclude my reviews with an unbiased look at whatever aspects of a book I feel were weak, or perhaps problematic in some other respect. In all honesty, I don’t have a single negative thing to say here … This book is worth every penny you pay for it.

It’s great to know that someone else feels the book to be as indispensable as I feel my work bookshelf to be. Here’s my bookshelf:


Destry, you are hereby entitled to a snog or a pint (your choice) if we ever meet up.

Site Speaks for Itself was the first book I worked on at glasshaus (manic final proofing stage). So I’ll always have a soft spot for it. Sadly, I lent my copy to a friend, who’s since moved away, taking said book with him. 🙁

I should write a few (but very kind) words up on Amazon. I haven’t finished reading it entirely (half-way through a “proper read”) but it’s a “must have” for every developer and design shop. The list of authoritative authors alone should be enough to convince people – but I guess you’d only know that if you were already a practitioner… OK, it’s on my to-do list.

Well there you go, learn something new every day. I think I prefer the Oolong side of the family.

As to your kind offer, my 8-month old son gives me plenty of “snogs” (wife too), so a beverage of sorts should be nice…non-alcoholic though.

Well, Destry, seeing as you’re a guy rather than a guyette, I revoke my offer of a snog.

But I’ll buy you a carton of Vişne (Turkish sour cherry juice) whenever you come to the UK.
